Improved Photos Can Add Thousands to Sale Price

The ultrawealthy owners of multimillion-dollar mansions aren’t the only ones who can afford to stick with their asking price.A “Developments” post from The Wall Street Journal suggests some sellers might need to take better photos of their home to gain a little leverage at the bargaining table, although sellers across the country are slashing their asking prices.The Journal states that sellers who posted photos taken by a higher-end single-lens reflex camera landed sale prices that were from $934 to $116,076 more than for listings that posted photos from a point-and-shoot camera, according to a new survey from Redfin Corp.Not everybody has access to an SLR camera, which gives skilled photographers more control over what they’re shooting and can produce higher-quality images. As the cameras of choice for most professionals, they’re more expensive and more hard to use than point-and-shoot cameras as well.Source:
